This is a journal of my insomniac musings on art and society. I view my writing as criticism in the broadest sense, whether it’s about cinema, literature, or life itself. However, I have no interest in being academic or pretentious. To echo Guy Davenport, I don’t for scholars or fellow critics, but for people who like to read, watch movies, and know things. Perhaps the two essays that reflect my best efforts to date are How to Not Be a Screen Junkie and Why Bookstores Matter.

Keep it real.
